Source: www.arhive.org The movie was originally released before the invention of sound film. For the 1942 re-release Chaplin composed and ecorded a musical score, added a narration (his own voice) and tightened the editing. Since the film was originally shot at 18 frames per second, the sound version, shown at 24 frames per second, is both shorter and faster than the original silent screenings. This has the side effect of making Chaplin's slapstick routines appear more frantic than before, a fact that had probably influenced Chaplin's decision to shoot Modern Times at silent speed.
